Hi

And welcome to the forum great news on you getting your first grey, have you got everything ready cage toys an avian lamp etc the essentials really. As for food the list is nigh on endless the best bet is to have a look in the diet section and then under "what's on the menu"  there's hundreds of different meals that over time we've all added to the thread with a small brief note of what we've cooked this will give you a great range of choices and foods to feed your grey. How old will your grey be? Do you know if your getting a male or female, but also feel free to have a look around all the site and any questions don't hesitate to ask and someone will help you out.

Welcome again look forward to hearing more.

Generally a vet would suggest a complete pellet. As for which one that can be a combination of things birds preference, price etc.. Then pro's for a pelleted vs chop(fresh) + additionals vs supplemented seed all ways can work. Yearly check ups help.

Most think supplement chop or pellet as for ratio all depends. As for how much tend to find they waste a lot. From a nutritional point of view pellets is a couple of tbsp seem to recall. Won't really overeat so tend to allow ours access to pellets all day.

Seem to recall there's a list of comparison pellets and food good and bad lists. Hopefully someone else will have a better idea where they are.

Everyone has different views on this one .
We feed Harrison's pellets with chop and fruit and veg .
We do not feed sunflower seeds and peanuts
